Wet Weekend

It has been so wet and miserable this week that for the most part I've been snoozing and watching Come Dine With Me, so dressing half decently hasn't been top of my list of priorities. I just want summer to be here - sunshine and a bit of warmth isn't too much to ask for surely?!

I went out for dinner avec mes parents ce soir and wore this jumpsuit. I had to wear it with the blazer (price per wear must be about 0.0003 pence now I reckon) because it is too chilly to go without.

My Dad was also desperate to be featured on my blog (I think he got a bit jealous that my mum has been on it and he's been overlooked - theres a good reason for that, sorry daddy!) so he got me to take a picture of him in his new jacket. My sister says it looks like something Elton John would wear - probably not something he wanted to hear after spending four hundred pounds on it.

I also thought I'd share a couple of pictures from my camping trip which took place at the weekend. It was really fun but incredibly wet. We ended up in Llangollen in Wales and were able to cheat a bit at the whole camping idea because one of my friend's sister lives in the town in a gorgeous (warm and dry) cottage and was happy to provide us with cups of tea and shelter.

Two of my friends bought a kids tent - Charlotte is about 5ft10 and Tom is about 6ft4 - they encountered a few problems trying to put it up:

Lovely warm and dry cottage:

From these pictures the weather looks lovely - in reality it was really strange. We had sunny intervals and then torrential rain in between (more rain than sun) and it was pretty windy as well. I wouldn't mind going back if and when it gets a bit warmer though - 5-10 Degrees is just not tent temperature.

  3. Haha, I would say it looks like fun but I'd be lying. I hate camping. On a positive note (and I'm trying to keep it positive these days) that jumpsuit is truly inspirational!

  7. You look stunning! The outfit reminds me of Ralph Lauren and your bag is just so fabulous! Also you seem to have a very fashionable family. I must agree though, your dad's jacket does look a bit like Elton John.
    You look much better than I ever do when I'm camping! I always looks sort of like a homeless hippie, it's wierd!

  16. Gah! I hate it when I lose some brilliant comment I wrote due to computer issues. That's been happening to me a lot every time I use Firefox actually. When I type a comment and click post it just disappears. Lame.

  25. The text to this post, esp. about your dad, cracked me up all over the place. What are you talking about, girl? Your dad TOTALLY ROCKS that lavender blazer.

    Meanwhile you are a sight for Stella-McCartney/Chloe eyes in that gorgeous jumpsuit. Jumpsuits are so perfect. Except when you have to go to the loo....

  28. I love you're outfit! It's so adorable. And it was nice you had a cottage to go to when the weather was bad, rather than taking shelter in the tourist centre or shops.

  29. Thanks for the comment! My brother actually designed those furry leggings and was able to make a deal with Hot Topic to sell them online. So if they sell really well online they might actually get put in stores and other designs from my brother will be able to sell. So I'm trying to feature them a little on my blog a little and maybe just maybe I will inspire someone to buy a pair! :)

  32. I've always thought I was rather British at heart. Perhaps I would get along famously with your people.
